Rollover. Truck was destroyed, two pts had a few lacs on hands. Not sure how that works. Seatbelts saved them.

Priest with chest pain. Let me tell you how careful I chose my words when asking about ED meds before the Nitro.....

"Father, have you taken any meds that help to elevate the Holy Spirit, if ya know what I mean"

Priest, looking confused. "No, I don't know what you mean."

"Ehh...Never mind. Any cialis, levitra or Viagra in the last 24 hours?"

Hahah. I can see this in my mind and I'm still laughing.

Regretfully, no. The whole situation was just weird though. Without going into too much detail, EMS found her in her car in the parking lot of the park unresponsive. They worked her 20 mins on scene and en route to ED. We worked her an additional 45. The only thing that we don't know is downtime on scene. We guess approximately 20 minutes, which may have been a deciding factor.

BTW For people who say don't transport codes en route and etc., transport to our ED acted as a bridge to potentially life saving, definitive treatment not available in the field. In this case, evaluation for ECMO. Yes, our ED has a protocol in place and yes, in this specific case, critical care and cardiac surgery came down to the resus bay and evaluated the pt. for ECMO. They opted not to utilize it but still...

If you have mechanical CPR during transport that makes sense. If it's manual, well we all know the efficacy of that in a moving unit.

Our medical directors trust us but they don't see eye to eye. Ones old with old school approach the other is younger with more relevant progressive protocols.



Could have tried but who knows with the laryngospasms. Never actually tried nasal intubation. Also currently our med control docs frown on nasal intubation (this month)

We actually really seem to emphasize it here at Acadian. Even have the nasal stethoscopes and endotrol tubes.
